Thank you so much for your lovely and encouraging thoughts about me and the new T., Annie. I was so lucky to find him, although I didn't really feel that until the last month or so. I was just a basket case of trauma when I first came to him- the awful behavior of the first T having added to the problems I originally came to him for four years ago. Everything is so much better now, and it is true that my husband and sons have noticed that I'm more my old lively self. I feel so grateful. This new T. really "contains" people extremely well, and, as a result, there is less pain, and more exploration.

As to the analysis being finished and successful: that was a training analysis for the candidate, and so had to be tied up at some point. Daisy has such a good point; in a way they are never finished, and since this was a case presentation, we didn't get to hear how the patient felt- he might have felt it wasn't so successful, or that the termination was premature.

Your T. sounds wonderful, too, and you seem to be describing the same close, wonderful moments. Even though you don't see her, you use all your other senses to feel and know her. My T. has a couch, and says I may want to use it later, but that's optional. Would you say that you are in analysis, or analytic therapy?
